Is a pigeon faster than uploading a video ?

Wow laughed at this thought only the USA had it this bad. Don't even think here is pigeons technology in the USA yet.

Contest had a 300mb video clip send via pigeon and uploaded at the same time and guess who won.
Start = Beverley, Yorkshire UK
Finish = Lincolnshire UK
55Miles route or 1.29hours by car.

  1. Intersting comparison but a bit biased. If they compared 56k download off a old phone line and put the flash card strapped to a drunk pig, the pig will probably will as well.
  2. The aim of the comparative review was to see which travels faster: video uploads by rural broadband or by pigeon post.

    Well not really a 56k modem. So what is biased ?
